Fall service changes – C’ya later!

We’re continuing to phase out the “C” on community shuttle bus routes

You asked, we listened! We’re delivering on the commitments in the 10-Year Vision by adding 30,000 annual service hours this fall. That means we’re adding over 100 trips and allowing for over 6000 more boardings per day on 19 routes and new service areas on 5 routes. To date, we have implemented nearly 250,000 new bus service hours thanks to 10-Year Vision funding.

We’re just getting started. Improvements to the transit network will continue to rollout over the coming years. It’s all part of our plan to reduce traffic congestion by making transit a better option for more people.

Fall service changes start September 3, which includes the final round of “C” name changes on our community shuttle bus routes.

The letter “C” used to indicate the route was served with only community shuttle buses. Today, we can better serve our customers by operating different sizes of buses interchangeably, depending on demand.

Unless specified, there are no changes to the route or frequency. Here are the new route numbers for the last of the C routes:

MyTransLink – August 28

SkyTrain arriving at Stadium/Chinatown station east of downtown Vancouver

Nippy mornings are back, and so are pumpkin spice lattes. It’s back to school in a few days, and summer feels like your best friend is leaving. I don’t know about you guys, but I am not ready for fall yet. Maybe the pretty foliage and the slight nip in the air, perhaps?

What I am ready for is our favourite day of the week when we get to feature some stunning images that you share with us for #MyTransLink. For our new friends here, MyTransLink is where we publish photos taken and published on social media by you – our customers! Each week, we give you a theme and you share your photos on Instagram using the hashtag #MyTransLink.

This week, we asked you to share images of where transit takes you, so lo and behold, the chosen ones from this edition:

For next week’s #MyTransLink post, we want you to share photos of fall! Snap photos of that latte you bought, or the pretty leaf at the bus stop, and share it. We’ll feature some of the best here!

Snag your issue today on the bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express, or download the PDF off the TransLink website.

Fall Service Changes 2018: the first SWATP improvements arrive


You asked, we listened! Our Fall Service Changes adds 100 more trips every day and 6,000 more spaces for our customers across Metro Vancouver — made possible through new 10-Year Vision investments.

As part of this, we’re thrilled to be implementing the first improvements from the Southwest Area Transport Plan, which was finalized in July. The plan established a blueprint for the transit and transportation needs in Richmond, South Delta, the Tsawwassen First Nation and important connections to North Delta.

Starting on Sept. 3, we’re splitting the 401 and 410, both into two routes to improve speed and reliability. We’re also extending service to new areas: Port Royal and the Blundell Road Industrial Area! Read more »
